Hi everyone.
I've got a friend who leaves in Turkey. He wants to ımprove his English but I don't know which method to advice him as I'm not from Turkey. İn French we've got assimil method which is very efficient (I learn turkish this way) but I can't advice it to him as he doesn't speak french. If there is someone who knows a good English method for turkish speakers out there it would be great. Thanks in advance.

There are Turkish Assimil books.
Assimil offers a turkish based textbook for German, English and French.

On the other side Assimil isn't cheap.

I like Assimil, but I also need much more grammar explanations. An additional grammar book might be helpful, but that depends on the learner.

Thank you very much for your answer. İf it isn't cheap I can offer it that is not a problem. For grammar explanations I think he has other sources like English normal lessons.

I understand from your message that English will be his first foreign language. Although
I like and use Assimil a lot, I cant recommend a Turkish based assimil for English.
His mother tongue, say, his primary mental decoder isn't a European language, not even
from Indo-European gross family. He should first learn English grammar with Turkish
explanations, get convinced about English syntax, and then can continue with worldwide
methods like Oxford Headway etc.

Actually, he already has some basis of English, and his primary language is kurdish which is a indo-european language, so I don't think it will be a problem for him to use assimil.
